develop new channel

I've tried to get back EASY answers on how to create a channel for the Roku system and what's involved. It seems like I'm getting a run around? We've got lots of videos on spirituality we'd like to make into a channel. They've been done in mov, mp4, etc format using Imovie. They are presently on youtube and vimeo. What is involved in taking these videos and creating a channel? Is it complicated? I ask "how much does it cost" and I get what seems to be a run around via email from channel development. Someone please give me the simple facts on what is involved to get our videos on to a channel and what roughly will it probably cost, if anything at all.

Re: develop new channel

The most sure way to get a channel developed for the Roku is to sign up for a developer account, download SDK and dig in. (

However, since you are already on Vimeo, your videos may already be viewable on the Roku via the Vimeo channel, so if you cant find anyone to get the work done for you, you can suggest your viewers on Roku to subscribe to your channel in Vimeo and they should be able to view from the Roku's Vimeo channel (publicly available, and I am pretty sure its free.) - I understand this probably not optimal, just letting you know of a workaround until you can get development done.
